Distractions like social media, texting or even just the notification sound are proven to be the number 1 cause for low productivity at work.
Decide on a specific period of time you’re going to work to and turn off your phone, or turn on the airplane mode so you don’t have any distractions while working.
Only practising this daily takes your focus and productivity to a new level.
2. Use Pomodoro Technique
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management system that encourages people to work with the time they have—rather than against it. Using this method, you break your workday into 25-minute chunks separated by five-minute breaks. These intervals are referred to as pomodoros.
Step 1: Pick a task
Step 2: Set a 25 – minute timer
Step 3: Work on your task until the time is up
Step 4: Take a 5 – minute break
Step 5: Every 4 Pomodoros, take a longer 15-30 minutes break
Find your strengths and focus on them.
Find your weak areas, and find the right person whose strength is your weakness.
For example, if you’re really good at copy writing for your business, but design is your weakness. Focus your time writing more copy and find the right person to take that copy and make designs out of it.
This will help you achieve more in less time, and maintain the highest quality.
4. The 6 Goals Rule
Aiming to finish 20 tasks in one day will probably get you to procrastinate most of your work without focusing on quality. Every single day, aim to finish no more than 6 things.
Work until finishing these for the day. Tasks that you didn’t finish will always move to the next day. So, if you finished 4 tasks, you can only add 2 for that day, keeping you list clean with 6 tasks at a time.
